Images are only to create visual intertextuality, and to place there both character and a spectator. So both can rediscover their flickering identity first on a basis on ancient myth of Danaé, and second on the grounds of a classic drama by Chekhov. The eternal exile becomes immanent for both Danaé and Ranevskaya…
